Just as your student’s college experience continues beyond O-Week, there are ways for parents and family members to stay involved in the Rice community. Below are some of the ways that currently exist though more are being developed each year to better engage parents and family members in their student’s educational journey.
Each fall, Rice invites parents and family members of current students to campus for a taste of life at the University. This is a perfect opportunity for you to spend time with your student, learn a bit more about daily life at Rice, and get to know other Rice parents and family members. The dates for Families Weekend 2018 have not been confirmed. Please visit the official Families Weekend website for more information.
The mission of the council is to facilitate philanthropy, act as ambassadors for the university and its students, and foster a welcoming environment for all Rice families. For more information about joining the Parents Leadership Council, contact Diane O'Brien at email@example.com.
If you are not receiving the Parents and Families Newsletter, please send us your preferred contact information by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, email, student name and student class year.
